Here’s The Perfect Itinerary For A Weekend On New Hampshire’s Seacoast
Sometimes you need to get away from it all – your house, your job, your family – but you don’t have a ton of money or vacation time to spare. Luckily enough, in New Hampshire we live in vacation paradise, and you don’t have to be a tourist from afar to enjoy all that the Granite State has to offer. Grab a partner, friend, or just yourself, and leave it all behind for a weekend on New Hampshire’s most beautiful Seacoast city and relax, refresh, and recharge.
Leave work on Friday afternoon and head straight to Portsmouth's Ale House Inn, a unique boutique hotel in a building that once held a brewery.
The Inn is intimate, cozy, and equipped with bikes for its guests that you can use to get around town for the weekend. It's located at 121 Bow St, Portsmouth, NH 03801.
Learn more about the inn here.
Once you've put your things down, head over to Book and Bar, which as the name suggests sells both engrossing books and delicious drinks. Have a drink and a snack and peruse their selection of novels as you let the stress of the week dissolve.
You'll find this delightful spot at 40 Pleasant St, Portsmouth, NH 03801.
For an upscale dinner, head to Row 34, which is perfectly sleek and trendy for a weekend escape.
They have a wide-ranging menu and somehow get absolutely everything right. Find them at 5 Portwalk Pl Portsmouth, NH 03801.
Take a walk through Portsmouth's evening as you digest your dinner and admire this beautiful city.
In the morning, head to Colby's Breakfast and Lunch for a delicious feast.
This is the kind of spot where you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Find it at 105 Daniel St
Portsmouth, NH 03801.
After breakfast, head down to City Hall for Portsmouth's weekly farmer's market, where you can get all sorts of local goodies.
Stock up on some snacks for the rest of your day!

Take your snacks and head out on the water for a noon cruise with Portsmouth Harbor Crusies.

Once you're back on dry land, head over to The Portsmouth Brewery to catch their 3 p.m. brewery tour and try a few samples.
It's located at 56 Market St, Portsmouth, NH 03801.
For dinner, head to Street, a quirky restaurant where you'll find dishes inspired by global street food.
The food is inventive and delicious, and the vibe is relaxed and fun. Find it at 801 Islington St, Portsmouth, NH 03802.
If you're not quite ready to head to bed after a busy day, head to Latchkey for a nightcap.
This cool bar serves amazing cocktails. Check out the menu at 41 Vaughan Mall Portsmouth, NH 03801.
Enjoy another classic diner breakfast at local favorite The Golden Egg.
If you're feeling indulgent, the banana bread french toast is out of this world. Find it at 960 Sagamore Ave, Portsmouth, NH 03801.
Sadly, the weekend is coming to an end and it's time to check out of the hotel. Before you hit the road, though, don't miss the chance to check out the U.S.S. Albacore.
This Navy submarine is now a museum and you can climb inside!
